Joker was originally released on October 2 in India. It went on to become a box-office hit, being awaited by many people across the globe ahead of its release. It also became the first R-rated movie in the US to gross over a billion dollars. Getting an A-rating in India, the movie also went on to become the biggest DC movie in the country.
At the 2020 Academy Awards, Joker became the most-nominated movie. This included lead actor Joaquin Phoenix picking up the Best Actor trophy for his portrayal of the character. Hildur Guðnadóttir also bagged an Oscar for the best original score in the movie.
Joker will be available on the Prime Video app starting Monday, April 20. The movie was released in only English-language audio, so it is unlikely that we will see a dub for the movie. However, Amazon has created dubs from scratch for movies before, like with another Oscar-winning movie Parasite. We could see the app do the same with Joker.
